refusing to support any new gun laws. >> senator feinstein's bill to -- is that going to pass? >> i think that's a phony piece of legislation, and i do not believe it will pass for this reason. it's all built on lies that have been found out. everything i hear -- i mean, my gosh. people in the media, i revere their communication skills, but they have an obligation to be factual, to be truthful, and everything that these politicians are saying about that is not true. >> pete williams is nbc's justice correspondent. pete, after the news conference on friday, we have that interview from wane la pierre sitting down with david gregory over the weekend. the interview really came as no surprise after what we witnessed on friday. >> it believes there are many -- sfwlo did he say, thomas, they want to encourage schools to -- the nra is willing to help train people, whether it's policemen or volunteers, whatever local school districts want to do -- >> it's gnting to satisfy the gun restrictions in the next senate. >> asa hutchinson, is now helming a model shield program that the nra is sponsoring t

. >>> pass new gun laws or set up more armed protections at our schools and public places? that seems to be one of the big debates in america this evening. let's bring back our panel, and we welcome nan hayworth. let's start with the nra they want armed guards in the schools. what's your take? >> well, larry, this is -- we are still reeling from a hideous event. so there are going to be a lot of ideas that from every segment of our society that people are going to have. i think your point is very well taken about the value of faith. whatever someone's faith may be, and family-based faith, as well. because if we can as a culture be mindful that there are -- there are people and there are interests and there's a society outside our own heads. i think the video games play into that because people have become young people and these are young men who do these. they're deeply disturbed, but there is a cultural milieu that contributes, i think, to that sense that somehow they feel they can go out and be destructive, by whatever means. and as we know -- >> katie, a cultural milieu, an interes
including oklahoma, missouri, minnesota, south dakota, virginia and oregon have said they will consider laws allowing teachers and school administrators to carry firearms at school. the nra says they are moving ahead to have their national model school shield program in place to any schools that want it. joining me now to talk about the dangers and backlash is the program director asa hutchinson. thank you so much for joining us. one of the things that struck me listening to wayne laperriere, there was no mention of any gun control in favor or in opposition, so i wanted to get you on the record. will the nra oppose any attempt to put new gun laws in place? >> well, that's a separate debate. my responsibility is school safety, and i think that's where the debate should center. we've got to act in a very urgent fashion to protect the children. my responsibility is to convene a high-level panel of experts to develop a model program for our schools, new tools they can use that will help protect our children. one of those options should be armed guards who are trained, but that should be an optio
could get done after january 3rd and that you wouldn't see a sharp drop. but there's a principle in law that you don't put a witness on the stand if you don't know what they're going to say. i think there's also a principle at work here that you don't dangle the possibility of a deal that you can't deliver. and i think the volatility in the markets and people i have spoken to agree with me, the volatility is in part because speaker boehner, scott brown, other people keep dangling the potential 6 a deal that isn't ultimately delivered and those expectations are the problem. so i think going forward into 2013 you won't necessarily see this because i think that maybe after the 3rd they will be smart enough on capitol hill to do a two-year deal, to get us to 2014 without having to do this annually. >> and if they don't, joy, aren't we just going to expend all the political capital that's left in this town on these kind of deals? there's not really going to be any time or energy to do anything else? >> you're absolutely right. you have imagrees reform, gun issues out there. the problem is we

by law to temporarily postpone the date that the united states would otherwise default on its legal obligations. there is wiggle room. that is equivalent to two months of borrowing. >>> now to the other financial crisis that could mean higher taxes for all of us. will congress send the country over the fiscal cliff or will they come up with some sort of deal and hit the brakes? the senate returned today hopefully to come up with some kind of deal. dana bash is flling this on capitol hill. i imagine we're all working over the holidays and i fess we're going to be working as long as they are working. hopefully they're going to get something done. we heard from house speaker john boehner earlier today. where is this? clearly it looks like now it's in the senate's hands. >> that's right. it is absolutely in the senate's handings, has been effectively since the house speaker failed to pass his so-called plan b proposal last week. and so what is going on behind the scenes right now, suzanne, is the senate democratic leader is trying to figure out if he can cobable together enough votes, w
a archaic 1947 law, unless the new bill is passed by december 31st, the government will be forced to buy vast quantities of milk at twice the wholesale rate. two bills are in congress. the senate passed one for $23 billion in savings. the house is looking to enact 35 billion. the sticking point the full house of representatives hasn't approved the bill. >> the farm bill is like this low hanging ornament on the congressional christmas tree that if they just embrace it, they can automatically come up with tens of billions of dollars in budget savings. and then they can figure out where else they need to cut spending after that. >> reporter: the secretary of agriculture tom vilsack has said his department is preparing a case the permanent law comes into effect. temporary solution is to attach a farm bill extension to the fiscal cliff legislation. harris? harris: is there anything besides milk we need to be aware of? are we looking potentially at higher prices among many farming commodities for example? >> reporter: yeah. it is not just the cows. it is the crops too. it is possibility the go
